Mitzvah Project: Bracelets for Orphans
Tell us a little about your school.
We are a small school with under 25 girls, we feel like one big family.
How did you decide to take on this particular project for Lev LaLev?
Our school has a Chesed program led by a few girls; I am one of the heads. We try to do activities every few months and came up with the idea, looked up the Lev LaLev orphanage and knew it would be perfect! We hoped the activity would be fun for the girls and meaningful at the same time, and it was!
What was the most meaningful part of doing this Mitzvah Project?
Seeing that all the girls really wanted to make a difference in another’s life made us (the chesed heads) feel so amazing. Many of the girls took beads home to make more.
Please share any details or fond memories of your Mitzvah Project.
The enthusiasm was just breathtaking. Almost every girl in our school participated and some of the staff happily joined in as well!
Anything else you would like to share about your experience with Lev LaLev or the Mitzvah Project?
We felt that the Lev LaLev was especially accommodating and very pleasant to work with. Thank you for giving us this opportunity!
Please share your advice for a girl looking into doing a Mitzvah Project.
The Lev LaLev program is amazing, making a seemingly hard mitzvah easy! We felt like we made someone’s life a little sunnier. Do a mitzvah project!
